The Challenge

Managing competitions is a major headache for academic institutions. Many moving parts. Lengthy email threads. Non-stop tracking throughout the review process. The variations are endless, not only with each competition, but requirements differ at each institution. Off-the-shelf systems are like a square peg in a round hole and do not provide a solution. Look no further.

InfoReady CompetitionSpace™

InfoReady CompetitionSpace, built on the Knowspace platform, is both scalable and configurable to meet the needs of institutions of all sizes. From a simple, one-step competition to complex external funding competitions that need to connect with various internal resources, InfoReady can configure CompetitionSpace to meet an institution’s needs.

Highlights of CompetitionSpace:

  • Setting up competitions is a breeze! Use our template – shaped by customer feedback – or create your own
  • Hit the ground running! InfoReady will upload and configure your database of archived competitions so you can begin managing your competitions immediately

The Challenge

Higher education institutions and research organizations rely on research and program grant funding opportunities as an integral part of their revenue. Funding is available in myriad locations including government and foundation sites. Grant proposals are currently prepared haphazardly using email, internet tools and disparate products resulting in inefficient proposal development and loss of time.

InfoReady In4Grants™

In4Grants™, built upon the InfoReady KnowSpace, gives fund-seeking organizations and researchers a highly productive solution for finding funding opportunities in less than half the normal time and free up valuable time for collaborative research and proposal development in a secure workspace.

  • Search time for funding opportunities reduced by 50% to 75%
  • Researchers use familiar social networking tools to invite peers and collaborators within or outside their university to participate and develop funded research proposals in a secure workspace
  • Automated tracking produces accurate, complete reporting on-demand. Report generation time has disappeared

The Results

Pre-award research collaboration and proposal development is more efficient.  Proposal developers have more time for developing high quality proposals with rich content.
